(It's best to include stock number, species and price when ordering - thanks!)

     The Ovulids are a popular "specialty" family - limited somewhat by the smaller size of many species, and the difficulties in identification. Their extreme variety of shapes, excellent range of colors, and the splendid variation within most local populations (hence the opportunity for great sets and pairs!!) make for good fun and aesthetic enjoyment, while the taxonomic aspects appeal to the more scientific-type collector. For good measure there are a fair number of them, which means if you decide to add them to your "Families I Collect" list, you will not run into a "dead end" any time soon: they will pose a continuing challenge!!!
